Not sure if this kind of post belongs here but on BBC Radio London digital towards the end of the first half of the Spurs commentary tonight a few seconds of tone was heard almost sounding like it was censoring the commentators. Not sure if it was mentioned at the start of the second half. Does tone appear if a signal is lost briefly?

It's more likely a sign that someone mis-routed something!

Slightly odd decision taken by FreeSports on the Indian Super League match currently showing. They were just having a minute's silence, before they cut away to an ad break around five seconds in and came back as soon as it had finished.

Has this ever happened before? Seems slightly disrespectful if you ask me, especially when one of the adverts is for bloody Go Compare.

I'd second what thegeek said - the most likely cause is something being mis-routed. Tone wouldn't appear for a loss of signal. Perhaps the studio was expecting crowd FX on a particular source, went to fade it up and it wasn't there for some reason.

I would imagine it was more a case of no one knowing it was coming up and those in charge of the breaks not having the authority to miss them. I imagine it was for something irrelevant for UK audiences and what should have happened was the break should have been taken before the silence had begun.
